MiniMe Full, updated, installed on an 8Gb SD. Celeron processor, 1Gb RAM.
Giving MiniMe a try on my EeePC 701, I find the only power profile available is performance. Having successfully modified my HP laptop using Tex's method I tried it on the Eeep.
After reading your post I activated conky and cpuspeed -p 50 50.
Watching the cpu speed (freq) go to ridiculously low levels and moderately
high levels depending on percent usage. Low percent usage is supposed
to get high freq and high percent usage is supposed to get lower freq
speed to save power, etc.. A novel idea. You might want to try it.
Going to experiment with cpuspeed -p 0 50 and cpuspeed -p 50 0
but I have to kill it first.
ps. with gkrellm I always run at performance level and that's confirmed
also by conky freq reading. Don't know how else to do it.
